Begin in the classroom. Give them a white sheet of paper where they can begin at their desk and map out the rest of their classroom. You can also add North, South, East, and West in order to apply another concept and challenge those little minds! I have seen it work student find themselves confused but as long as you have North, South, East, and West labeled in the room they will figure it out.

Hello, You can use something like a collection of tree things to make a tree on construction paper. You can have students collect tree leaves etc. and when in the classroom they can build their tree with the real parts. They can then share their tree with their groups and they will have a blast teaching them their tree.

Hello, Creating a cloud in the classroom could help in conceptually understanding. Pintrest is probably not the most educational resource but if you look up creating a cloud you can find how to make a cloud using a bottle and other simple items. I tried it and my niece and nephew loved it. This can help them have some type of visual they can build on with information later.
